TASD Business Administrator Mr. John Clark

Mr. John Clark has recently been hired as the new Business Administrator for the Tyrone Area School District.

The Business Administrator is responsible for overseeing the financial operations of the district and supporting the superintendent and school board in financial decisions.

Before coming to Tyrone, Clark was employed by the Spring Cove School District in their business office.

Clark was born in Bedford, Pennsylvania and graduated from Bedford Area High School. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Dietetics from Penn State. He has also done coursework at Tulane University and is currently working on his Master’s Degree in School Business Management from Wilkes University.

Clark is married and has three children. His wife Cindy is a Guidance Counselor at Chestnut Ridge Middle School. Clark’s oldest child lives in California and works as a commercial animator. According to Clark, he animates those “annoying commercials” on the sides of web pages or other media. They also have a daughter who is a student at Penn State Altoona, and their youngest daughter is currently in seventh grade.

In his free time, Clark enjoys hunting and fishing. He also enjoys riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

According to Clark, his goals are “to keep TASD financially solvent, to be able to find funding for the educational experiences that we want to deliver to students, and to operate efficiently.”

Clark says he is very glad to have this new job and that he hopes to fill the role to the benefit of the students and the community.
